8K

22 – 28 November 2017

Running:

It would not be Thanksgiving time without many holiday themed races.

Make room for Thanksgiving Dinner ahead of time by running the Gallop and Gorge 8K

Not only are kids excited and Thanksgiving but the Gobblers Run 5K benefits them as well.

Run the Ridgewood Turkey Trot at the shopping center before the craziness begins.

You will have to do more than trot to win a trophy at the Trophy Trot 10K.

Run after the Thanksgiving’s main course in Umstead at the Turkey Chase 5K, 10K or 20K

Driving:

Get some ideas for a future car project at Cars and Coffee Wake Forest with a variety of cars and trucks to look at.

Featured:

If you want to burn off the most fat on Thanksgiving Day run the Skinny Turkey Half Marathon or if you want to go easy there is the Just Think First 5K.
